Stitching News

Just a quick catch up this time....
Loopy Lynn is relatively new to quilting and she is having quite a lot of fun... her words... but it's also very obvious, especially now that she has her very own, and brand new, Juki HZL G220. The Pineapple blocks make a great colourful border on this panel don't they.

Monday Sheila is/was a dressmaker turned quiltmaker, amongst other makings... best Victoria Sponge maker in The Whole Wide World!!! She running up outfits for a few Rag Dolls that she'll be making soon... very cute, fabulous knickers and darling floppy hats!

New Sue was worrying about her cute but extremely thin looking Santa...
It must be his pre-Mince Pie and Brandy look!
He is one block of a Festive sampler.

It's been ages since anyone made 10 Minute Block quilts and it seems no-one can remember how to do it. A quick refresher for those ladies got everyone else interested, so I think you will be seeing more of this design in one form and another. It's on the wall in my very own shop if you would like to pop in to see it.

Chrystal not only finished all 16 of her 6" Pineapple Blossom blocks she had them stitched together and ready for sandwich and quilting. She has a cunning plan for the Bonus HST's (Half Square Triangles.

All Day Di got her Flying Geese organized, eventually. There were two spare tables in the afternoon which gave Di a perfect sandwich making opportunity. Such a lovely quilt.

Brenda Barbara finished one cushion zip and all and almost finished another, she is a dab-hand at free-motion quilting in the lovely meandering Jig-Saw Nipple design... he he he It's one of my favourites too.

Beryl spent her class time quilting. It was a bit of a puzzle remembering how to stitch the shadow quilting the desired distance from the seam... Then we noticed that the needle wasn't in the middle of the foot... so Beryl has to keep a very close eye on proceedings.

Taa Daa... four Pineapple Blossom Blocks stitched together with sashing and a corner stone. Loopy Lynn will turn this into a fabulous cushion... at least that was the plan last time we spoke. I'm guessing it will have covered zip in the back too.

Its a brief post, I know... but I am busy, busying.... back soon!
